Leicester City v Newcastle United Premier League Betting preview 2018/19
Friday night see’s Leicester City host Newcastle United in the Premier League clash that will be broadcast live on Sky Sports. Being live and with Leicester seemingly in excellent form since the sacking of Claude Puel and the subsequent hiring of Brendan Rodgers this will see many people tune in and also many people looking to take on the bookmakers and bet on the match. So we have created this Leicester City v Newcastle United Premier League Betting preview to hopefully find some betting value and find some winning bets from our free betting tips.
Naturally, the first betting market you would look at is the outright match winner bet. As we said at the beginning, Leicester City are in fine form, winning their last 4 matches and putting 4 goals past Huddersfield Town last Saturday away from home. Newcastle, on the other hand, have struggled all season to get on a decent run of form and have only won 1 in the last 5 games, drawing 1 and losing the other 3. It’s safe to say Leicester are favourites to win with the bookmakers, and we tend to agree and would be definitely be looking to place the Leicester win bet in our selections. If you are one of the bigger bettors as well, we think this could be a decent single bet, as Betfred and Blacktype are both offering betting odds of 3/4 for the Leicester win. Quite decent and appealing, we think. Anyone wanting to bet on Newcastle to win should head straight to BetVictor or Bet365 who are both best odds of 17/4 at the moment, whilst the draw is around the 13/5 mark with many bookies.
The 2nd betting market we are going to look at is the Correct Score bet market. Newcastle are one of the lowest scoring teams in the Premier League this season, and we fell they may find it hard to break Leicester down, especially now they are pressing higher up the pitch. We’ve already said we think a Leicester win is on the cards but also can’t see Newcastle scoring and certainly like the look of the 8/1 offered by Bet365 for the Leicester to win 2-0. A nice little bet you could look at if you are not so confident about guessing the correct score but a Leicester win and clean sheet, is the Leicester win, both teams not to score, double bet. This works out a fraction over 5/2 with BetVictor and looks excellent betting value.
The first goalscorer betting markets tend to be one that we avoid, especially as it is still a few days until the game (we are writing this on the Tuesday). However, the anytime goalscorer bet is of interest. You’d be hard-pressed to ignore Leicester’s Jamie Vardy in this as he is in fine form at the moment, and also takes the penalties. He is best priced at 11/10 with Unibet currently. Another player who is really impressing at Leicester at the moment is Youri Tielemans and the 9/2 with Unibet looks an interesting bet. You can even do the Vardy and Tielemans anytime goalscorer double bet and get 21/2 with Unibet if you are feeling adventurous.
Other bets don’t really jump out at us with any great appeal although the Leicester City 1-0 at half-time bet with BetVictor may be worth a bet with the odds currently at 14/5.
We are well aware this betting preview doesn’t really add anything for Newcastle fans in the betting, and well certainly have egg on our faces if Newcastle United upset the form book and actually win this match. We have picked a little bet out though so Newcastle fans, albeit a little bit of tongue in cheek but still gives you something to bet on. Furthermore, we’ve picked out the 7/2 with Unibet for DeAndre Yedlin to be shown a card in the match! Sorry.
